1st May 2019, Manchester

Event Full Details:

They/Them/Us go to… Writing Our Freedom(s) workshop with Travis Alabanza

We have 10 spaces reserved for this workshop – which is now sold out! This workshop is open to trans, gender non-conforming, non-binary and queer folks exploring their gender. The workshop is hosted by the Centre for New Writing at the University of Manchester

Please email as soon as possible to confirm your attendance.

We will be doing a They/Them/Us pre-meet at a nearby coffee shop (TBC) from 5pm and going to the workshop together (leaving at 5:45) for 6pm.

“Join Travis Alabanza for an intimate writing workshop that aims to use poetry, text and play to reflect and interrogate our relationship to our gender, bodies and the outside. Inspired by Travis’ debut poetry book ‘before I step outside (you love me)’, the workshop aims to use different writing prompts, discussions and sharings to have space to think about our gender, public space, and imagining something more.”

**We have reserved 10 places – please email to confirm your attendance. You will receive a confirmation by email**
